EbonyLife TV off DStv for EbonyLife ON
Fans of EbonyLife Tv will no longer be able to view the channel on DStv Channel 165 as from July 31.
Promoted as Africa’s first Global Black Entertainment & Lifestyle network, EbonyLife Tv announced that it was leaving the channel for its own EbonyLife ON app platform.
Founder and President of EbonyLife Network, Mo Abudu, said on her social media handle that the network will, effective July 31, provide some of its content to people who subscribe to EbonyLife ON app.
The broadcast owner and content producer also revealed that subscribers “will have unlimited access to EbonyLife ON series without having to wait one week to watch them on DStv.”
This arrangement, according to Abudu, will require subscribers to download the app on Google Play Store or App Store, which comes with a viewing schedule that will allow users to watch whatever series they want to on EbonyLife including, Castle & Castle and Sons of the Caliphate.
EbonyLife Tv began broadcasting on July 1, 2013, to a pan-African audience on MultiChoice DStv channel 165. The studio arm of the network recently partnered with the streaming company Netflix on the adaption of Lola Shoneyin’s The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives and Wole Soyinka’s Death and The Kings Horseman.
